The RAWI+Mizna 6th National Lit Gathering will take place at Open Book, which houses the Loft Literary Center, in Minneapolis, MN, from June 16 to 18, 2016. These vibrant conferences are an opportunity to gather with leading writers, performers, and scholars of Arab American literature in a collegial and intimate setting. We invite all members of the Arab American community and our friends and allies to join together in spirit and conversation to celebrate and nurture Arab American literature, art, and culture.

We are thrilled that Suheir Hammad will close the gathering with a performance with Syrian electro-tarab musician Hello Psychaleppo! Tickets available here.
And for a taste of their amazing work, see Suheir Hammad on Def Poetry Jam and listen to some of Hello Psychaleppo's music.
